We talked a while back about bringing graph2 into [math] and if there
is community interest in that idea, I would be willing to help with
that, as long as we keep it simple, sticking with just the ADT and
algorithms, staying away from the visualization / GUI stuff.

I would also be willing to help "revive" [graph2] if there is
sufficient interest in that independently.
